Saturday at East Coast Park 

***April 15***

Usually we would meet up with Richard and company for some indoor lunch or dinner dates. That Saturday however, was the first time we arranged to meet up at East Coast Park for some outdoor activities instead. Hence my initial plans to the Marina Barrage was flopped. At first, I wasn’t exactly very keen on going to the East Coast Park until the thoughts about dining at the Food Centre enticed me. Well you know this is the time when one could ordered a table full of yummy local delights with all the friends whereas it’s almost impossible for just Papa Yap and I to do so.

The adults and kiddos started off with some games of frisbee and soccer on an open field. I bought Dyann a ball from the nearby kiosk when I realised there was nothing to keep her occupied. It was not a bad idea after all. She was happy. 🙂

Somehow the older kids became a little bored and requested to go cycling. It wasn’t of any issue for us as we had brought along Darian’s bicycle and the glider for Dyann while the rest rented a bicycle each. Darian had fun cycling along with them while Papa Yap and I guided Dyann on the glider and took a gentle stroll to and fro the jetty.

We were all tired and hungry after an hour of cycling and walking. Before heading over to the food centre, we took some pictures of the sand castles built in memory of the late Lee Kuan Yew. It was indeed nicely done.

The food centre was already packed at 6pm. Fortunately we managed to secure a big table, to accommodate the 10 of us, pretty fast. While the five adults went off to get the various food, I stayed behind to watch the kiddos. Well that’s the advantage of having young kids! Haha…

We had a table full of yummy food. There were satays, bbq chicken wings, oyster omelette, braised duck, fried rice, bak kut teh and sambal sting rays. Somewhat we really ordered too much food and ended up having lots of leftover. The thing about being in this group is that no one actually has the habit of taking photos of our meals. And that explained why there wasn’t any photo of our palatable dinner.

After dinner, we bought some old school ice cream from the ice cream vendor on our way to the car park. The cold and sweet dessert was certainly a good treat to end our day! 🙂
